Ways & Means


Jean Bartholomy Scott gave this quilt to her son in 1992. The family name was "Blocks."https://quiltindex.org//view/?type=fullrec&kid=12-8-603

It looks like this simple four-patch of squares and rectangles,
which I could not find in my Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns.

But when I examined the slide closer I saw it as an on-point set of a version of Jeff Gutcheon's very popular pattern Card Trick. 

BlockBase #1674

My first impression: Squares and rectangles! Precuts! Jelly Rolls!

Ways & Means 8" Blocks.

Cut some Charm packs into quarters so you have 2-1/2" squares.

Or combine squares and rectangles cut from 2-1/2" Jellyroll strips.
